Freelance Writing Jobs: 42 places you can find work TODAY!

Last Updated On: March 17, 2017

Let’s get to the point, looking for freelance writing work can SUCK!

There is just so much garbage out there and if you only have a few places to look then you’re really not going to hit the ground running as a freelance writer.

Discovering great places to find freelance writing jobs is what took me from being frustrated and broke to being able to consistently earn a comfortable income every month.

In this list I’m going to break down a bucket load of great places that you can find work. So bookmark this page right now and use it as a reference for whenever you need work fast.

Lastly, I won’t be including freelance auction sites such as Upwork and Freelancer.com, because I have had nothing but problems and frustration with them.

There are much better alternatives that I’m about to tell you about.

Take a proven shortcut that sets you up for success.

Before we move on, are you confident in your writing work?

The reason I ask this is because I see people often directly refusing to apply for a freelance writing job in case they feel overwhelmed or “I won’t get it anyway”.

This was me not too long ago, but I made a decision that I was going to be brave from now on and apply for the work that I want.

Elna of writeto1k.com
